I'm thinking of adding some issues and/or modifying some issues, so should I be putting down the date that the issue went on sale or the month and year indicated on the comic itself, if they're different?

For instance, Loners #1 is currently listed as being June 2007. Now, I know Loners #1 came out in April... so should I -- and others like me modifying issue dates -- be going by the date that these issues came out or what?

I always list the publication date listed inside the comic. That's the most official date you can get.

I've always wondered why the publication date isn't the same as the release date. Anyone know?

I think its all part of the industry. They all want the perception of getting things out early, so comics and magazines always put the "month ahead" date on the cover. It's like new cars. The 2008 models should be coming out any day now.

PUT THE DATE IN THE COMIC please!!! Not the release date. So like most things coming out this week had JUNE. The only real exception is 52 'cause they list the actual date. I imagine Countdown will do the same.

I agree. It's always seemed like they're either trying to one-up each other, or just fool the rest of us when they fall behind in publishing.
